Re: functional programming

Hi Raj,

you can not use 2 pure function in abreviated form (#&)in the same 

expression because then it is not clear to which function the argument # 

belongs. Therefore, for at least one function you must use the verbatime 

form Function[..,..]:




hope this helps, Daniel
